Circumnavigation on foot of Mersea Island on 21 January

Wonderful winter sunshine for John and Linda Kent's HROA Eastern Region Coast Walk.

The plan was to walk from West Mersea to East Mersea around the “back” of the island (northern side), along the sea wall. A beautiful walk in sparkling sun shine of about 7.5 miles, almost all of which was along the sea wall with views over the marshes and Pyfleet. Lunch for the hardy walkers was in the smart West Mersea Yacht Club, with gorgeous views over the swinging moorings. Happily organiser John and Linda Kent arranged for a few cars to be left at East Mersea, to collect the HROA walkers to drive back to West Mersea, as lunch at the club, would have turned into supper instead! Lucky participants arriving early got tea, coffee and some warm croissants in the Kent's kitchen, much appreciated by one of the walkers who drive up from Tunbridge Wells for the day!!
